  • We begin making Sama Khichdi Recipe (Vrat Recipe) by dry roasting the barnyard millets in a pan till it turns slight brown. Turn off the flame and allow it to cool.
  • Then in a SUNFLAME PRESSURE COOKER add 1 teaspoon cooking oil,
  • Once the oil is hot, add green chillies, bay leaves, cinnamon and crushed peppercorns and give it a good stir
  • Next add the chopped potatoes, carrots, tomatoes and saute until for a few minutes until they are slightly soft.
  • Add 2 cups of water for 1 cup of sama rice to get a creamy consistency.
  • Let the water boil and then add the millet and cover it for 5 minutes and let it cook for 2 whistles.
  • Turn off the heat and allow the pressure to release naturally.
  • Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with coriander leaves and squeeze in the lemon and give it a mix.
